We had the good fortune of connecting with JoJo Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi JoJo, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
It has always been my passion to provide bodywork and doula support in a way that made sense to birthing families. With the loss of my prior employment during Covid, I was presented with the opportunity to do just that in starting my own business.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
As a practitioner of over 15 years, I have learned that the prenatal & postpartum stage is one that requires very specialized attention. Many experience trauma during their journey which may be held for far too long. It is my mission to provide coaching and services that support positive outcomes and healing where needed. I have dedicated my career to educating myself so that I may be able deliver exactly what I hear a birthing person and family are seeking. I have also learned that I must provide a space for others to feel safe, nurtured, trust and let go. I am truly honored that I get to provide exactly that and it is felt throughout each service I provide.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
My first stop would definitely be Mercado in Pasadena. It is my happy place. Everyone I have taken there feels the same. The ambiance, food and beverages offer a moment to feel nurtured and connect with your special friends every time. After enjoying a lovely meal, it’s a treat to visit Alexandria next door where you are sure to find something to soothe your energy, ground you or enlighten you on holistic wellness.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I owe my success to all my beautiful clients and families! They believe in my mission and value the quality of customized holistic care during their prenatal & postnatal journey which is supportive of their wellness.
